On Wednesdays, Delores, from Under The Porch Light, has a word challenge meme which she calls “Words for Wednesday”.
She puts up a selection of six words which we then use in a short story, or a poem.
I’m hopeless at poetry so I always do a story.
It’s a fun challenge…why not join in?
Our words today come from Elephant’s Child again, Delores is still experiencing computing problems :(
This week's words are:
Here is my story:
Steadfast and true, I stuck to my timetable. No mindless rushing for me. Life wasn't a short, sharp, dash, it was a marathon and I was here for the long haul.
I was wary of those who would rush me. This milestone, that milestone, all must be met and conquered, but in my own time. A gentle jog, rather than a sprint, that was my plan.
If I did it right, it would serve me well.
I would be industrious, work hard to become skilled at everything I tried. Here I stood now, on sturdy little legs, facing the yard of itchy grass. My ball had rolled away and I wanted it back.
I let go of Mum's chair and stepped. Once, twice, three times. I heard a soft gasp behind me.
"Mum, look! she's walking. Miriam is walking!"
"Bless her little heart," said Grandma. "And not even one year old yet."
